Sellwood Bridge Update- The Bridge Arches are done

If you’re interested in the Sellwood Bridge construction, then you’ll be interested in a major milestone that just passed.  It didn’t happen at the construction site, but across the Columbia in Vancouver.  Thompson Metal Fabricating just finished building the gigantic arches that will be the backbone of the new bridge.  The arches will be delivered by barge in early 2015, and traffic should be flowing on the new bridge in late 2015 or early 2016.  Just click below to read OPB’s great article on it.RestOfNewsletter
